and this is breaking news in to cnn that bail has been set and the amount is $28,500, so this is the bail that we know that oscar pistorius -- $250,000 is the amount. hold on while i turn to jeff toobin for a little bit of analys analysis. $28,500 u.s. equivalent of rand is not a high bail. >> it's not a lot but once the judge made up his mind that oscar pistorius is so famous and so tied to south africa that there is basically no way for him to flee, and that he's going to surrender all his travel documents and his passport, the amount is actually not all that significant. this is not obviously a lot of money even in south africa, but i think what's really important about this case is his ties to the community, his personal situation rather than the dollar amount of bail. >> what's been, andrew, the fallout from this case in sort of the bigger picture? one of the things we know that the defense team has been positioning there's this culture of fear and that somebody who is famous would be likely and expected to be fearful. that's what oscar pistorius is sort of describing as he explains what he did t

, remember something too, part of what you see when you turn on cnn or other stations are people in america projecting their cultural kind of assumptions on to south africa. i saw somebody the other night, may have been on this show say, well, he didn't call 911, which factually was not correct. they have something there. but the person he would have called is perfectly normal according to people i know in south africa, is who you would call. so it is not the american system. but i think this guy has a pretty good defense, based on what i talked to, people in south africa, his kind of paranoia, his fear of crime, i don't think that's something that is so outlandish. >> mark, let me ask you, the prosecutor has been trying to portray pistorius as a flight risk. the fact that he doesn't recognize his crime, the idea that he is prone to violence. do you think that a solid argument against bail? >> no, i think the opposite. i think what the magistrate replied, is why wouldn't he have every incentive in the world to clear his name. and he's got a very able defense team. i think that's very compel
